Challenge 2 - 12 Days of Christmas DIY Challenges

Today is day 2 of our 12 Days of Christmas DIY Challenges.  
For 12 days we will set a challenge to create something for Christmas using just the resources you have on hand. The idea is to show that Christmas Shouldn't Cost the Earth. If you're reading this, chances are you love to craft, but why not craft with the resources we have on hand - let's get creative!

So let's find out what the second Challenge is., brought to you today by Vicky from Vicky Myers Creations!

So - here are some ideas for gifts you can make from old jeans.

One Pair of Jeans - 5 Gifts

Another pair of jeans - 5 more gifts

Yet another pair of jeans and another 5 gifts!

A Sashiko Denim Bag from Vicky Myers Creations

Jeans Pocket Cushion from Threading My Way

Have you ever made any gifts from old jeans?  If you have - we'd love if you linked up your projects below and shared your ideas!

And do come back here in a few hours to see my new idea and  tutorial for making a gift from a pair of jeans!


Each day a challenge will be set by means of a video and blog posts giving some suggested ideas and crafts. These posts will also contain a linky party for anyone and everyone who wants to join in to link up their projects - both past and present, that answer the challenge.  The linky party can be found on all our blogs and we'll  try and come up with different ideas and tutorials for the challenges too. So please do visit us all, and then share your ideas with us as well! We're looking forward to seeing how these challenge are met!

Ready, Steady....Let's Christmas Craft!
